Ed Greene, released their self-titled debut album in 2006 at the label I Made This. The record was well received in the press and the song “When The Sky Is About To Fall” got significant air play on Swedish radio. Members have come and gone, contributing to the continued development of the band, including Tiger Lou, Christian Kjellvander, Britta Persson, Tom Malmquist and others.
The songs on this 4-track EP is pulled from a recording session that ended up in an album that has yet to be released.
Hopefully people will come to the same conclusion as music blog SwedesPlease “if you were to twist my arm I might say they’re the best unsigned bands in Sweden”.
This EP is filled with strong melodies and the songs are powered by the guest appearances of Karla-Therese Kjellvander, Per Nordmark (Christian Kjellvander, Fireside, Britta Persson, Bad Hands, Breach, etc.) and Stefan “Mother James” Petersson, who also is a recurrent feature during live performances. The influences are found in the U.S. songwriting tradition, from the very flimsiest bluegrass to the most powerful rock. Bits and pieces are put together to create the straight forward melodic sound of Ed Greene.
